(WARNING: There will be SPOILERS for Episode 1 of DC Universe All Star Games. They will be blurred in the post, but others may or may not do so in the thread, so proceed with caution!)
So, DC Universe All Star Games premiered last week and was awesome! As I heard somebody say about the show: you don’t come to DC Universe expecting a tightly-edited, entertaining RPG show, but you’re glad they did it.
But right to the story. The campaign of the first season is titled The Breakfast League, an obviously 80’s-fueled storyline that follows four teens who stumble upon a mystery during Saturday detention at West Ward High in Gotham City.
As the mystery begins to unravel, the teens also begin to make discoveries about themselves and who they are destined to be in life. Speaking of which…
During the closing moments of Episode 1, GM Sam Witwer pulls Clare Grant aside to let her in on a secret. As it turns out, her character Katie isn’t just a regular teen, but is in fact a DC superhero. She’s also given her actual character sheet and is told that she can reveal this information at anytime.
Who is she? We don’t know, as only Clare gets to know that information.
Now, for the speculation time!
Any idea who her true identity is? I only saw one other guess that could be credible (Catwoman). My guess is a little out of left-field, since this character didn’t exist in the era of DC continuity that The Breakfast League is set in. But the one thing I know to be a fact about GMs is that even from a worldbuilding standpoint, you gotta have some room for surprises.
With that said, my theory on Katie’s identity, based on what we know about the character, is that she is a young Harleen Quinzel, or as we all know her: Harley Quinn.
I only say this because throughout the first episode, she presents herself to be the most eccentric of the group. Heck, her character profile describes her as being a bit of a ‘basket case’.
But who knows? Harleen isn’t the only ‘crazy’ character running around in the DC Universe and it’s only the first episode, so she could be anybody. Same with the rest of the cast. At one point, a card flashes on the screen telling us the following:
Follow the clues & play along at home to solve the mystery of West Ward High.
HINT: The players are not who they appear to be.
So, if you have any guesses as to who Katie really is, drop them in the thread below. I may or may not do some other posts about the identities of the other characters, but if you have guesses for those, I won’t be mad if you drop them here.
